The city government is encouraging taxpayers and other individuals transacting business with the different offices at City Hall not to bring their vehicles so as not to waste time looking for a space to park.
Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong said because the City Hall compound lacks enough spaces for parking, the most practical way to go to City Hall will be to commute.
Taxpayers who have been trooping to City Hall this month to pay their taxes have been complaining about the lack of parking spaces.
Aside from vehicles of private citizens, government vehicles and those owned by the employees and elected officials occupy designated parking spaces.
The limited spaces at City Hall coupled with the rapidly increasing number of people wanting to transact businesses with the different offices of the city government prompted the previous administration to consider the construction of an annex building at Camp Allen.
The P800-million worth eight-story annex building will house the different offices of the Sangguniang Panlungsod to allow the expansion of other offices currently located in the main building.
Construction of the annex building is expected to start anytime this year after it was bid out with a work program of two years.
The city government earmarked an initial fund of P400M for the first phase of the project and another P400M will be provided in the city’s annual budget next year. – PIO release
